Last week I bought a pair and a trio of Millie FLeur d'Uccles from the Crosstimbers Ranch in Texas. We selected Monday of this week to ship since our weather was going to be exceptionally warm Monday, Tuesday and, today. At 730 this morning my son was on the phone to the post office and the lady told him the truck had just arrived and she could hear the chickens! We live about one minute from the post office so he went immediately to get them. These Millie's are SO perfect! What sweet beautiful little birds. We just came in from spending the entire evening with them. Anyways, when my son opened the box containing the pair there was an egg! The hen had laid an egg during the trip! Later, when I got home there was an egg in the brooder cage that had the trio! Then as soon as I put them in their new pen the third hen laid an egg! That is just way too cool. The birds seem so happy and were very well taken care of. They are crowing, eating and drinking up a storm, and seem very content in their new home. Here are some pictures they took to show me the birds. These pictures don't really do them justice. They are very good looking birds. I will take my own pictures soon.
